Learn more about Ecom Brokers

Ecom brokers makes selling your ecommerce business simple, hassle free, fair and clear.

Founded by Ben Leonard and Allison Walker, we’ve been there and done it - on all sides.

Based in the UK, Ecom Brokers works with businesses all over the world

When Ben and Allison worked together on the sale of Ben’s eCommerce business - they noticed a gap in the industry. Where was the brokerage that had the experience of the seller, the broker, the accountant and the eCommerce expert? It didn’t exist…until now.

Ecom Brokers is the eCommerce brokerage by eCommerce people.

We understand - You worked hard to grow your business. You deserve an honest broker who knows the process, has experience on all sides of the sale (seller, buyer, broker, accountant) and knows the market.

We know that it feels like all the brokers want to take an unfairly high commission from your sale…So we don’t!

We realise you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the options for selling your business. So we make it simple. It’s an anxious time, you need honest guidance from experienced and knowledgeable brokers who will get you the best deal, at a fair price.

Unlike other brokers, we’ve been there and done it on all sides - we’ve built, scaled and sold our own multimillion-pound international brands, we’ve brokered deals, and we are experts on the finances!

We know what it takes to get you a fair deal with a responsible buyer and get it done!
